SOURCE: Cut grass clippings does not get picked up by riding lawnmower

When using a bagger, you need correct blades on mower or Worn blades will cause the deck not to get the vacuum needed for the bagger to pickup.

Make sure that you have 12vdc at the carb solenoid. If you do, next check your compression. You can do this with a compression gauge or by taking the spark plug out and placing your thumb over the hole and turning over the engine. If you are building compression it will blow your finger off the hole. If not check your valves to make sure they have the right clearance.

Sounds like your starter is bad and that could be causing your blades not to work if you have a cvt type clutch. If you don't i would check your belt it may be stretched out.

SOURCE: craftsman riding lawnmower won't bag grass

A very common problem since mowers were made noise compliant, to collect grass you need draught, this is produced by putting a large wing on the ends of the blades and having a high engine speed, unfortunatly large wings and high engine speeds mean high noise, so today the wings are very small and the engine revs low, this leads to low draught and grass blockage, you need to keep the under side of the deck clean and free from old grass clippings, make sure the machine is fitted with collection blades, not mulch blades, i cannot tell you to increase the engine revs, however if for some unknow reason the engine were to start reving higher it would help.

Take the starter assembly off the mower. Unwind the spool using whatever method works (2 screwdrivers?) until you capture the remaining. cord. Pull it all the way out. Pin the spool so that it can't retract. Remove and replace the cord. Re-assemble. Back to cutting grass!

I have a brand new craftsman 190cc lawnmower and the pull cord will not pull out


If it's new sometimes the manufacture puts a safety block to hold it from moving during transit. Check for this. See if the blade will turn and if not see if there is a seized area. Is the blade jammed against something.

10 year old Toro 2017 lawnmower, suddenly stopped while cutting grass. Oil quite low. Cannot pull cord more l than few inches.


When you pull the cord does it hit a hard stop and not go any further or does it get really difficult?

My Craftsman lawn mower starter cord doesn't retract after mower starts.


I have had this situation before on a lawnmower. I didn't have a craftsman, but is probably the same issue. Basically, the spring that recoils the cord back in either broke or came unwound. When the mower is not running, the cogs on the pull chord keeps the cord from coming out. When the mower is running, the spring is not wound enough to hold the chord in and thus releases or doesn't hold it in.
Try pulling the pull chord assembly off and rewind the spring.
